CREAM CHEESE MINTS RECIPE:
2 oz. of cream cheese (room temperature)
1/8 teaspoon oil of peppermint*
1-2/3 cups powdered sugar
Food color (optional)*
In a medium to large bowl mash cream cheese, add a drop or 2 of our oil flavoring and gel food coloring, gradually mix in powdered sugar. Knead mixture with hands until it is like the consistency of pie dough. Form small balls and roll each in granulated sugar. (The sugar prevents the cream cheese mixture from sticking to the mold.) Gently press the ball of dough into the mold cavity, smoothing off any excess. Unmold immediately onto wax paper on a flat surface. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Mints will freeze easily so you can prepare them in advance.
